Because, frankly, celebrating seems a little wrong to me.
I’ve been reading reactions on twitter today, and though I feel something akin to relief, I also find it diffucult to find joy in another human being’s death. I found this tweet from boywithredwings sums it up best so far:
A monster is one who takes pleasure in the death of his enemies. A monster is dead. Take great care in how you respond to that news.
That said, I find reading twitter easier than reading traditional news media. Twitter offers rather more in the way of dark humour, which is a good thing in my opinion.
And I couldn’t help smile at the trending topics just now:
I mean, really, Jack Bauer and Megatron? Huh.
